Birthday Buddies 2nd Golf Tournament

What a fantastic day for our 2nd Annual Birthday Buddies Golf Tournament held at Majestic Oaks. You couldn't have asked for better weather or turn out. Last year it was pouring rain and cold. (for this year -just in case, Nancy bought rain slickers for each cart).

Just a few shots here, but to see the entire event go to

Nancy and I wore the extremely attractive hats most of the day.... not much the Donahue sisters wouldn't do for the cause. Dave "Hooner" was there, he's one of our best friends and a great supporter of Birthday Buddies, he never misses an event.

There had to be about 40 golfers in all. They played "Shotgun" style, with something special at several of the holes. After they came in we had a catered dinner while we did our silent auction and raffle.

One luck winner won a spa package worth $810 that included six 40-minute facials, six 1-hour massages and several other fantastic treatments and products. There were also lots of golf, beer, wine and sports items, as well as gift certificates to many nice restaurants. We've found cmopanies in the Twin Cities are most generous in donating to Birthday Buddies and we thank each and every one of them. With out the support of others, we couldn't continue. OUr next even we have planned. . . .

This is our annual Halloween Costume Party. Mark your calendars - it's for a good cause and tons of fun. I have already started working on my costume - I went as a banana last year nad Nan went as a "Gothic Princess". The photo of us together is posted on the web site ... the Donahue Sister's for a good cause again.

Looks like today is going to turn out to be a wonderful day too. I'm still in the process of moving so after work I will keep plugging along with that.

Enjoy the day!
